“[The] mountains were made to be explored,” says Eric Orton, running coach and the man behind the upcoming Jackson Hole Running Camps. “The goal of this camp is to become an explorer of your running, of your goals, of what is possible. This is the natural gift from the mountain and the ultimate reward from this camp.”
Eric Orton is the author behind the acclaimed book The Cool Impossible, and he’s the coach from the cult classic book Born to Run. Orton is passionate about adventure and running, and is known throughout the world as a fitness expert. He’s competed in races ranging from 100 meter dashes to 36-hour ultra marathons, and he has amassed enough fitness and running accolades and accomplishments to make your mind spin. And, Eric Orton is hosting two running camps on his favorite trails in his hometown of Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
The Eric Orton Jackson Hole Run Camps will take place on two separate weeks later in the summer—August 13–18 and September 10–14. Teton Mountain Lodge & Spa has partnered with Eric Orton and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort to create a dream trip for runners! These three-day running camps will blend the breathtaking beauty of Jackson Hole with the world-renowned coaching of Eric Orton. Perfect for aspiring marathoners and elite athletes hoping to learn from the best and take it to the next level, The Eric Orton Jackson Hole Run Camps is designed for experienced runners who want to push their potential.
“I’ve always wanted to do this camp,” Orton said to The Active Times in a recent article. “Timing is everything and the timing just seemed right. With my book The Cool Impossible and with Born to Run, these last four years I’ve heard from people all around the world who wanted to come and train with me. This camp will really allow me to affect a lot of runners globally.”
Orton is thrilled to share his hometown and home trails—he lives in Jackson Hole—with camp attendees. “I think this is an opportunity for people to come and use the mountains as a way to challenge themselves within their own abilities,” he told The Active Times. “The mountains provide a natural challenge that is above and beyond anything anywhere else… The point is to walk away thinking, ‘Wow there’s something more possible for me.’”
